Mobile World Congress – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in wearable technology, today announced Voyager Edge, a compact and stylish, high-performance Bluetooth earpiece. Featuring a slim, sophisticated design and signature Plantronics audio technology, Voyager Edge offers clear communication in any environment with proprietary noise- and wind-cancellation and an elegant charging case providing extended talk time on-the-go. Intuitive, responsive features such as voice commands and Smart Sensors let wearers answer calls hands-free with a word or as they place the headset on their ear, and Voyager Edge announces the name of incoming callers. Voyager Edge will be available worldwide starting in April.

“Always-on-the-go mobile users may answer a call in a cab, take it out on the street, and not say their goodbyes until they’ve finished their latte at the coffee shop – they need reliable audio that effortlessly handles transitions, much like they do,” said Jan Caldarella, senior category manager, Mobile Communications at Plantronics. “Voyager Edge is the perfect companion to any smartphone, offering premium features in a stylish, intelligent earpiece.”
Designed to make an impression, Voyager Edge elegantly blends eye-catching style with careful attention to comfort, with its lightweight form factor and soft-touch, natural materials. The earpiece-only design (no over-the-ear component) makes it easy to put on and remove and is particularly convenient for use with glasses or sunglasses. With its portable charging case, the Voyager Edge is an always-ready companion – always charged and ready to keep the wearer connected.
- Portable charging case: The protective rechargeable case tops up the earpiece battery, adding up to 10 more hours of talk time, features touch-sensitive controls, and shows the charge status of both headset and case.
- Noise-cancellation: Multiple microphones and signature Plantronics audio technology eliminate disruptive background noise so your caller hears the speaker, not their surroundings.
- Smart Sensor technology: Responsive sensors intuitively direct calls to the phone or headset, pause music for incoming calls, and automatically answer calls as the wearer places the headset on their ear.
- Voice commands and audio alerts: Allows wearers to use their voice to answer or ignore calls, check battery level, connection status, and more. And Voyager Edge announces the incoming caller’s name – no need to look at the phone to check who is calling.
- Language options: Personalize Voyager Edge with a language of choice by simply selecting a preferred language during the set-up process.
- Always-Ready Battery life: Charging via MicroUSB, the Voyager Edge headset provides up to six hours of talk time, or up to 16 hours with the portable charging case.
- Locate your headset using free app: Download the free Find MyHeadset app for Android™ phones and send a tone to hear the nearby headset or track last usage on a map using BackTrack feature. (Available for iOS™ in Spring.)

Voyager Edge will be available in three colors, Carbon Black, Slate Grey and Glacial White, at authorized Plantronics retailers, etailers, and carriers worldwide starting this April. MSRP for Voyager Edge with Portable Charging Case is $129.99 USD. For more information, please visit www.plantronics.com.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
